Jiny Lan

Jiny Lan, an internationally renowned Chinese concept artist, addresses urban life in the world's big cities in her large-scale works. Trained at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Zhejiang, China, the painter has lived in Germany since 1995 and combines artistic traditions of Asia and Europe to create her own visual language. In paintings of aesthetic conciseness, she questions the moral and traditional images of women in China in comprehensive series.

On Schwanenwerder, Jiny Lan is particularly happy about the proximity to the water. “I owe a lot to the water. The artists' house on Schwanenwerder inspired me immediately.” Today she lives in the Ruhr region and works as a freelance artist in Düsseldorf.
